For all those who enjoy their World War 2 games with a heavy helping of tactics, good news is on the horizon. Ubisoft and Gearbox have announced the third instalment of the Brothers in Arms
series, entitled Hell's Highway
Here's what they had to say at the press release:
“Brothers In Arms Hell's Highway brings the critically acclaimed squad-based WWII shooter into the next generation of gaming with amazing graphics and sound, new cutting-edge gameplay features and a completely redesigned online component. Delivering on the franchise's compelling story, unrivaled authenticity and intense squad-based action, Brothers In Arms Hell's Highway drops you into Operation Market-Garden, the largest airborne operation of World War II. Lead Matt Baker, Joe Hartsock and the rest of the 101st Airborne Division as they fight to open "Hell's Highway" in a daring bid for a quick end to the war.”
The game is set for release during the holiday period of this year and is being developed for Playstation 3 and the PC on the Unreal 3 engine, so expect some tasty visuals. The developers promise to continue to implement their unique tactical style of gameplay while also maintaining the theme of a strong storyline which will presumably follow directly on from the previous two games.
Whether the latest version of the game will be an online success remains to be seen as previous versions did not reall seem tailored for that type of gaming experience.
